70s was also my guess. I'm sure you're right.

As for the advice about reading in order - this may be easier said than done in the UK. Might have to go down to Murder One's second hand section? Or find my old British Library card? And I'm afraid that one of the things that grabbed me was the whole business of the literary/aesthetic references. I fear that Sallis and I had the same kind of postgraduate training.

And the 2000-calorie sandwich - no surprise there. Thanks, everyone.
